I need suggestions for low calorie snacks. I get very hungry between meals and I don't know what to eat to tide me over. If I don't have something, I overeat at mealtime...any helpful tips?

I sometimes snack on a frozen mix of berries: blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries, etc. I just grab a few from the freezer and pop them in my mouth. Sometimes I snack on some spinach leaves with a very little bit of hummus too. Those help stop my cravings for a while.

If I am really hungry, I find a small handful of plain roasted or raw almonds, along with a big glass of water will somehow fill me up. I also snack on tomatoes - either cut a big one in wedges, or I like the small grape tomatoes, or I heat a cup of no-salt-added chicken broth, and drink like a cup of tea, but it feels like a bowl of soup! Or an apple, or a hard boiled egg.
Don't forget to drink lots of water too - I read somewhere that often when we think we are hungry, our bodies really just need to be properly hydrated.

I eat a LOT of celery with just a tiny bit of peanut butter on it. All that fiber is filling, and you get the crunch satisfaction.

I also will snack on a HB egg OR one of the mini low-carb (low sugar) yogurt cups. You really have to read the sugar/carb contents on yogurt -- they're all over the board!

For me, I need a snack with protein to tide me over.

Thank you for all the suggestions...I really need to stop mindless, unhealthy snacking.

Okay! 20-30 pounds. This sounds like a good place to start. I am 246 now down from 315. I want to shed another 20 to 30 this summer. I think this is reasonable.

I'm buying a juicer soon. Need to get my fruits and veggies in a simpler way since I am a busy girl!

I drink lots of water and exercise every day for an hour or two.

Today's weigh-in for me was no change. That is good though for now. Wishing the rest of you a bigger improvement.

Today's weigh-in - down 3.4 lbs.. More than I thought, but I will definitely take it.

AAD and Renee - Good job on the losses. Steady works!!!

Corinna - I think that since you don't have much to lose, it may be coming off
slower at this point. I'm sure it will come.

Jeannie - Welcome! Sounds like you have a good plan in place already.
Congratulations on your weight loss so far. Most of us weigh in on
Saturday, but whatever works for you is good.

Jude

I have reset my weight loss goal. I once had it at 130 but b/c I have gotten my addiction under control I realize that my weight loss can what I weighed BACK when I was 20 years old, before I became a sugar/carb addict.
